    66 Monaco Wagon Preservation

    Still waiting for my tubing bender to show up, hopefully tomorrow. I did receive the Federal Hill tubing and fittings. Fiddled today using some 12 gauge solid wire to rough out patterns for the two new lines.

    66 Monaco Wagon Preservation

    An interesting side note on this car: I've had a small You-Tube account since 2011, mostly videos of cars I've owned and mostly very little interest from the public. Except: I posted a 1 1/2 minute video when this car arrived in 2018 showing it being backed out of the trailer. For some reason...

    66 Monaco Wagon Preservation

    I now have all the brakes reassembled and installed. I ran into a problem with the new front wheel cylinders I had, they came with a smaller diameter and much longer bleeder screw which was impossible to use with the tight clearances at the front spindles. I decided it would be easier to just...

    So how is the new site software?

    I figured it out and I now stay signed in but I have to hit "Home" to open it up each time. No biggy but seems strange.

    66 Monaco single brake reservoir to dual

    Update, I will be making the new lines for this conversion. I have ordered Cunifer tubing and all the fittings from Federal Hill and just received a new double flaring tool kit, more to come.

    66 Monaco Wagon Preservation

    And the world's slowest brake job continues. Both rear brakes have been fully assembled and my shiny new finned brake drums installed. I did the rears first because they are more of a challenge due to the axle hubs in the way and the E-brake pieces. They did not disappoint, every operation took...

    Just checked my master and it does have the residual pressure valves, thanks for the checking info.

    66 Monaco single brake reservoir to dual

    @rapidtrans , sorry this is an old thread from 2018 but I am doing this swap and had purchased the same Inline Tube kit you showed. It does not even come close to fitting as is, what am I missing here?

    Well I guess then the kit must be for a 300 and not a Monaco although I would think they would be identical.

    A Poor Man's Master Cylinder Upgrade

    Gerald, thanks for leading me to this thread, your description and parts list is excellent and answers most of my questions about fittings.

    66 Monaco single brake reservoir to dual

    Thanks guys, lots of research to do. I should mention I'm trying to do this without having to make any flares since I do not have a double flare tool. Will look at the Inline tubes again but they were way off on my initial try.

    66 Monaco single brake reservoir to dual

    Once again I am reopening an ancient post because it has taken me so long to actually do the work on my car. I am actually in the middle of a full brake job right now and it includes subbing a dual master for a single. Based on this thread two years ago I bought the Inline Tube line and block...

    66 Monaco Wagon Preservation

    After a number of holiday related delays and general laziness I have gotten back at it and have made some progress. I did modify and old box wrench which worked well and the front cylinders are off. I got new rear drums from Craig and also got his asbestos lined shoes front and rear. Other than...

    Where is the wheel cylinder wrench?

    Just wanted to update this, I opened a few more old tool boxes and found a box wrench that was already partly modified - someone had cut a section out of the front. With a little bit of grinding this did the trick and I got both front cylinders out.
